Hello everyone, am trying to solve this Fourier Trans. problem, here is the original solution >> https://i.imgur.com/eJJ5FLF.png Q/ How did he come up with this result and where is my mistake? All equation are in the above attached picture here is my attempt, part 1>> https://i.imgur.com/DT2tJ0y.jpg part 2>> https://i.imgur.com/jopEoQd.jpg part 3>> https://i.imgur.com/cKXoekT.jpg

You are out by a factor of $\omega$ in the final line, and perhaps consequently, a sign change. I suspect it was introduced in part 2 somewhere.

but also there is a little difference at the final results https://i.imgur.com/jkVdK7z.jpg and here is the original solution https://i.imgur.com/eJJ5FLF.png can you spot where is the mistake ??

What did you do on 'line 5'

In the previous solution there is (negative sign) which I forgot to include, but now I've included it, and, as you can see, the solution is somehow still different from the original one. Can you explain why? Last edited by skipjack; July 28th, 2017 at 06:50 AM.

$\displaystyle \int_0^\pi\! e^{j\omega t}\sin(t)dt = \left[\frac{e^{j\omega t}(\cos(t) + j\omega\sin(t))}{1  \omega^2}\right]_0^\pi = \frac{1 + e^{j\omega\pi}}{1  \omega^2}$. In the "original" solution, $\theta$ should be $t$.

Can you elaborate more? And is it correct that he reversed the integrals limit in the original solution? Last edited by skipjack; July 28th, 2017 at 07:59 AM.

For that type of integral, see this article. The limits were swapped to compensate for omitting $j^2$ from the denominators.

Thanks indeed for your article link, but can you explain more about the results of the integration?

What specific thing are you referring to?
